Matthew Stower

PhD MRes BSc (Exon)

Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Matthew Stower is a PostDoctoral Researcher in Prof. Shankar Srinivas' group at Oxford University. His work in the lab involves developing live imaging strategies to investigate epithelial tissue morphogenesis and understand fundamental cellular processes including the cellular mechanisms controlling cell migration in epithelia, the regulation cytoskeletal-elements, and the mechanisms controlling cell polarity and cell fate.

Matthew read Biological Sciences (BSc, First Class Hons) at the University of Exeter, where he first discovered his interest in developmental biology. He was able to pursue this at Post Graduate level through a BBSRC scholarship for the MRes, Regenerative Medicine course  at the University of Bath where he worked on neural crest migration in the lab of Prof. Robert Kelsh. For his PhD research project he moved to University College London to investigate the earliest molecular events controlling the induction of the nervous system under the supervision of Prof. Claudio Stern FRS. 

During his time at Oxford, Matthew has been involved with running the DPAG PostDoc Research Society, he has also supervised the laboratory research of students on both FHS and MSc Clinical Sciences courses, tutored undergraduate medics (New College Oxford), and has also  collaborated on research projects with Dr Federica Bertocchini (Evo-Devo project on Amniote gastrulation) at the University of Cantabria, and Dr Isabelle Migeotte (live imaging of gastrulation stage embryos) at Universitie Libre de Bruxelles.
